  1. Downtown LA: Towards Urban Sustainability / June 9 / (7:10’)

Los Angeles’ Downtown as a place that embodies potential sustainability. In spite of its assets in cultural, financial and historic buildings and a unique network of freeways and public        transportation, it has a population of only 50,000. This documentary tries to point out at     the fact that sustainability is not only about LEED’s platinum-rated buildings; it demands multi-use complexity and compactness. The visuals try to show what already is in place, capable of            absorbing hundreds of thousands residents that may live and work in this centrally located area.
